Ariel Sharon, R.I.P.

As Robert Stacy McCain puts it, he was "a tough Jew."

"Bush remembers friend Sharon as ‘man of courage’. Dov Weissglass, a top aide of Sharon’s, said after his death Saturday that the prime minister and president George W. Bush established a relationship of deep trust and open affection. The strength of that bond between the two leaders and their administrations, he said, helped ensure firm backing from the US for Sharon’s battle against Palestinian terrorism in the Second Intifada."

Of course, the Arabs feel differently, (may they hang), including this condolence from Lebanon: “With the passing of Sharon, there is now less evil in this world”.
